I just love lists...

A bit earlier we listed our favourite studio albums by GD.
But what do you people like when it comes to GD`s solo stuff?

Here is my list:

1. Ace (Weir)
2. Garcia (Garcia)
3. Diga (Hart)
4. Cats Under the Stars (Garcia)
5. Planet Drum (Hart)
6. Heaven Help the Fool (Weir)
7. So What (Garcia and Grisman)
8. There and Back Again (Lesh)
9. Reflections (Garcia)
10. Evening Moods (Weir/Ratdog)

What`s yours?

Kind regards from the land of the midnight sun.

1. Garcia (Garcia)
2. Shady Grove (Garcia/Grisman)
3. Cats Under the Stars (Garcia)
4. Ace (Weir)(Yeah, it's a "solo" album in name only, but whatever)
5. Run For the Roses (Garcia)

I do not listen to a lot of solo studio Dead (cue Most Interesting Man in the World Voice) but when I do, these are the ones I favor, especially that first Garcia album. Some people will probably be surprised to see "Run for the Roses" here; I'm aware that it's not highly regarded by either fans or critics, but I've always enjoyed it, especially the title track. The solo efforts from Phil and the drummers never left much of an impression with me.

Good to see others mention Evening Moods. A great album I think. And Lucky Enough, that song would have been a hit in the eighties.

1. Shady Grove, Garcia/Grisman
2. The Pizza Tapes, Garcia/Grisman/Rice
3. Cats Under the Stars, Jerry Garcia Band
4. Not for Kids Only, Garcia/Grisman
5. Garcia/Grisman, Garcia/Grisman

I'm not too enthusiastic about any of the rest - although I consider "Ace" more a Grateful Dead record than a Weir solo record or I would include it.

Yes, I love Compliments too. I remember being disappointed when I first heard it shortly after its release - I was just getting into the Dead and was hoping for more improvisational guitar solos and trippy stuff ("countercultural" as Gary Lambert's notes put it).

Russian Lullabye has always been a big favourite. So has When The Hunter ...; can't think why the album didn't make my list. Thanks for reminding us.
